Picking Apart a Picture of a Bathroom

Zillow Gone Wild posted about a house for sale in Batavia, New York. It has a four-car garage, six bathrooms, and a pool. It was selected for the X account because of the generous dose of taxidermy throughout the home. But what's going on with this bathroom window?

At first glance, it appears that the window is looking out on the scene of a plane crash, or possibly a parked plane. It's hard to tell with the reflection of the photographer and the arch around her. The location is a clue. Batavia has a fly-in community around Genesee County Airport, where you can keep your plane at your home and also close to the airport. This home is for an aviation enthusiast. So are we looking out at a plane in the backyard? No, look at the upper part of the window, where you see trees are growing. Someone guessed that the lower window has a wrap commemorating a crash that the homeowner survived. Continue reading for more.   

Commenters deduced that this is not a wrap, but a stained glass window. The plane still looks pretty messed up. Then @ZoolanderCZ posted a different picture of this bathroom, which must be older. Without the glare, it shows the stained glass more clearly, and it is indeed a rendering of an intact plane. The trees in the yard have not grown as tall as in the above image.

Would you like to live near the airport? This house will cost you $3,500,000. Bring your own plane.

A crash never crossed my mind. I figured that the plane was in flight and not on the ground. I thought maybe the two white rectangles towards the bottom was the runway to help give perspective that they plane was in the air. It's nice, but i would have had the background be all sky with some clouds. Nice bathroom though.
